Trump slams 'failing' Democrats: 'It is now Hollywood vs

Ryan's most notable failure came over the last few months when he was unable to bring his party - and the Republican president - together to achieve the repeal of Obamacare, something they have been promising to do for almost a decade.

A Georgia congressional election is headed to a high-stakes runoff that's shaping up as a referendum on President Donald Trump ahead of crucial midterm elections next year.

In fact, Trump arguably gave Ossoff his opening in the first place; Trump barely won the Georgia 6th in November and failed to win a majority, four years after Republican Mitt Romney got more than 60 percent of the presidential vote.

Pundits said Mrs Handel will likely win the run-off, but on Tuesday the Republican said in an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution: "Beating Ossoff and holding this seat is something that rises above any one person".

"We defied the odds and shattered expectations - and we are ready to fight on and win in June. Onward to victory", Ossoff, a documentary filmmaker and former congressional aide who campaigned on the idea he would be a check against Trump, said Wednesday on Twitter.

Ms Handel received a little over 19 per cent of the vote on Tuesday. Ossoff now faces a June 20 runoff with Republican Karen Handel, former Georgia Secretary of State, who finished second in the all-parties primary. As it is, he will go forward for a run-off on June 20th against Republican Karen Handel. He has also mobilized strong opposition against President Trump. "They came up short", Spicer said.

Trump repeatedly attacked Ossoff's record before the vote, saying he would be a "disaster" in Congress.

"Obviously, we're very excited, and what happened last night is very encouraging", said Handel.

"If you run as a Democrat, you're a Democrat", Sanders said. Last week the GOP held on to held a conservative Kansas seat vacated when Trump tapped Republican Representative Mike Pompeo to head the Central Intelligence Agency.

He benefited from a fractured Republican field of 11 candidates, some of whom emphasised their loyalty to Mr Trump while others kept their distance.
